Xybix's health treadmill is a heavy duty 24/7 model specifically built for the rigors of 911 dispatch. The treadmill is an easy way to increase activity throughout your day while you work. Combined with Xybix's ergonomic workstation solutions, now you can take the first steps toward a more healthy life. The treadmill is set to a pace of no more than 4miles per hour. 1 to 2 miles per hour would be the pace at which normal walking from place to place would occur.
Given the ample height adjustability and open foot well space of Xybix's ergonomic workstations, your new treadmill will fit perfectly under your workstation. A perfect way to add movement throughout the day, now users can walk while working and never interrupting the quality of their work. Users are able to do all of the tasks that they did before including using the computer, taking notes, and making phone calls.
Do they work?
Yes! Treadmill desks have been shown to help users lose pounds, increase energy, improve focus and renew enthusiasm for the job. In the public safety and 911 dispatch industry, treadmill desks have shown a significant impact on users who, frequently sit for 10-12hrs a day. Now with just small "steps" such as walking the recommended 10,000 steps a day, you too can help improve your health, all the while whittling away your waste line and increasing your energy.
Employee Wellness Program
More than ever before, corporations are realizing that healthy employees are happier employees who have more energy to take on and handle harder tasks. This in-turn increases their job satisfaction, helps reduce stress and leads to longer employee retention. The core of any employee health program is helping others to see the benefits from improving overall health and well being. Did you know that the average person walks between 3,000 and 4,000 steps per day, and 1,000 steps which is the equivalent of 10 minutes of brisk walking. Making it simple and easy, users can track their steps, calories and more using bluetooth connectivity and an online tracking platform. Xybix's partnership with LifeSpan Fitness gives users a lifetime online health and fitness membership as yet another way to improve your overall health. (additional memberships are available for purchase)
